Celebrities with Dental Braces

Celebrities with Dental Braces

How do you react when you see celebrities with braces? Does it change your opinion on the matter?

Celebrities are just like you and I when it comes to orthodontic treatment and braces. Most of the perfect Hollywood smiles you see today were not so perfect at one point in time.

Even before cosmetic or restorative procedures are performed, there are many times when orthodontic treatment is necessary before to properly align the teeth. This is as true for celebrities as it is for any other person.

Orthodontic procedures have become more and more popular among adults, accounting for 1 in every 4 orthodontic procedures. In today’s new age, you no longer have to feel self-conscious about wearing braces.

Teen / Children Orthodontics

When should my child have an Orthodontic Evaluation?

The American Association of Orthodontists suggests children have an orthodontic examination by the age of 7 because at that point in the child's development their teeth and jaw have grown enough for the orthodontist to anticipate any possible bite imperfections in the future. It is most likely your child will not need treatment at 7 years of age, but it gives the parents and orthodontist time in determining the best treatment approach for your child. Starting early is an important and essential part of a child's treatment plan because you and the orthodontist have more time to plan ahead and prevent the formation of serious problems. Dental problems do not arise overnight but do arise into more complicated problems faster than people realize.

The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment at a Young Age

Research has shown that when the skeletal structure of the child is growing and flexible it is easier to correct complex orthodontic problems. When the structure is corrected at a younger age, the mouth is properly prepared for the eventual rise of the adult teeth. The adult teeth will rise fairly straight if they have adequate space to erupt and once they have properly risen, their risk of becoming crooked again is significantly lower.

Once the adult teeth have risen (around ages 12-14) then the child is ready for complete braces to finish the perfectly detailed alignment of the bite. This last stage requires all adult teeth to have risen. It is easier and faster for the child and typically lasts for 12-18 months. This two-step orthodontic process yields marvelous results and enables the orthodontist to avoid permanent teeth removal or potential jaw surgery.

Phase-1 is the name of the treatment that is done when baby teeth are still present. Once all of the child's adult teeth have risen, Phase-2 of the treatment can begin.
